DIY Shoe Storage Ottoman

October 6, 2014

This is a project that I have wanted to do for a long time and when Goodwill of Orange County gave me a challenge to do a project fit for a dorm room, I knew this was my chance.

DIY Shoe Storage Ottoman

Having enough organized storage in a dorm room or child’s room always seems to be at a minimum.  With limited space, things need to do double duty.  I saw a large ottoman in a high end retail store with built in pockets to house 12 pairs of shoes.  I thought that was so ingenious, but the $80 price tag on it was a little more than what I wanted to pay.  When I purchased this gray and white plaid ottoman for only $19.99 at Goodwill of Orange County for a TV Room Makeover, I knew it was the perfect opportunity to transform it into a Shoe Storage Ottoman for a fraction of the cost.  Here is how I did it!


  • Ottoman from Goodwill
  • 1 Drapery panel from Goodwill
  • Fabric Glue
  • Hot Glue Sticks
  • Chalk


  • Tape Measure
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun


  • $30 at Goodwill
  • $2 on other supplies
